Covid-19 August '20

WE ARE OPEN


We will be open under alert level 2 for members and guests who may travel. That is those not within an alert level 3 area. Hygiene is most important so pack an extra towel for your frequent hand washing. If you can book a car park you will get lots of skiing in!

STAY HOME IF YOU ARE SICK

If you feel sick it may be the flu, a cold, we hope not covid-19. If you have any symptoms please stay at home. We will generously consider a full refund. If you do travel, record where you have been.

CHANGES THAT WILL AFFECT THE SKI CLUBS AND TRANSPORT CONCESSIONAIRES

Ruapehu Alpine Lifts under level 2 will be reducing their comfortable carrying capacity from 4,500 to 1,800 at Whakapapa and 3,700 to 1,000 at Turoa.  In order for RAL to manage these numbers and the restrictions imposed by the government under level 2, they will be operating their bookable car park system every day. Ski Clubs and Transport Operators wanting access to Iwikau must book a car park and confirm passenger numbers and details.

BRUCE ROAD BARRIER

Starting Thursday 13 August the Bruce Road barrier will be opened from 7.00 am and closed at 2.00 pm for bookable parking, and will remain closed overnight. DOC and Police will be monitoring to ensure adherence to the COVID protocols under level 2 and this will mostly occur at the Bruce Road barrier.
You can go to NZTA’s journey website to get the latest update on the status of Bruce Road.

PUBLIC HEALTH MEASURES

All concessionaires must follow public health measures to a high standard including physical distancing of 2 metres, contact tracing and hygiene practices including face masks where appropriate. Updated information is available on the government's COVID-19 website.

We all have a responsibility to ensure we have robust safety plans, consistent with the government's requirements for AL2 to minimize the spread of COVID-19. We appreciate your support.
